Finish and pin pillow exchange

I do hope everyone had a glorious Easter Sunday with family.

Friday night.. I finished this

"Hornbook Angel" by The Primitive Needle

stitched on 40ct Days Gone By with CC threads, black coffee and whatley woods

I received this beautiful perfect pin pillow from Michelle

I am so happy to get this, because now I don't have to stitch another one for me. I fell in love with the one I sent Jolene. I can have the joy to stitch something else plus enjoy this BBD pin pillow.

This was my first public exchange, I had so much fun, it was a joy from both ends. I love getting stitchy items from others. This is my 5th one. There will be more as I intend to get in more exchanges.

I will leave you with a photo from yesterday.

Brianna, my sweet little grand daughter. I always gets lots of request to post more pics. The older she gets the more nervous it makes me.

Tomorrow, the 6th marks our 25th Wedding anniversary, woohoo!!

Time sure does fly. There's nothing special planned, just going out to eat with the kids.

I hope everyone is having a sunny and bright Monday afternoon. They are calling for thunderstorms here in Illinois tonite.

Live Well~Laugh Often~Stitch Much

What a wonderful finish Ranae. That's been one of my favorites for a long time! And love your pillow exchange too! I've always wanted to join an exchange, but I'm soooo afraid that I would live up to the exchange on my end. I always have the best intentions, but something always stands in my way.

And a huge congratulations on your 25th wedding anniversary. I hope that you have a wonderful day!

Brianna is so cute, Ranae. I can understand your nervousness about posting pics of her when she gets older. I have thought the same about my Alexandra.

I love that pin pillow, I must just get it out and stitch it for myself, I have seen them all over blogs and I always wish I had one done. And I love your Hornbook Angel too! Great job!

Happy Anniversary to you and him!!
